In the small island of Cebu, you can find a little bit of everything. If it’s a pristine vacation on a white sand beach that you’re after, Mactan poses an immediate solution. If the bustling city excites you, business parks and techno hubs keep the metro busy. One thing that makes the Queen City of the South so unique is its balance of a true island city life—tropics on one side, urban destinations on the other—and no other real estate developer has taken advantage of this like PrimaryHomes, Inc.

There’s a lot to love about Cebu as it is, but taking advantage of its edge as an island destination, and coming up with the best way to build on that requires a lot of strategy and understanding.

When it comes to building communities, their unparalleled experience hasequipped them well with the ins and outs of real estate in Cebu. From mastering the island terrain, to considering the trends and needs of the Cebuanos, PHI has never stopped building up in order to give its clientele what they need.

Cebu’s Island City Life
There’s a lot of reasons why owning a beachside propertysounds ideal: the calm ocean breeze, the sound of the waves against the shore, the laidback feel. At the same time, people don’t want to stray too far off from the city, because that’s often where the bulk of development is concentrated. Finding a home that has a little bit of both may be a dream for some, but for many of PHI’s clientele, this is a dream come true. Not only do the PHI properties preserve the natural ambiance inherent to the beach, but they also offer prime locations, luxurious experiences, and world-class amenities without any compromise.
